I a 22 year female. I recently lied to my step father about being with my boyfriend who i have been on and off with for quite sometime. Well my boyfriend heard and got upset and now he thinks i am not ready for a committed relationship. When we were talking I couldnt look him in the face cause I hate seeing him hurt and I hate him seeing me cry! I dont know what else I can do to show/tell him that I only did it to not have any more conflict. Can you please help me?

AngelsColumn answered Monday August 6 2012, 8:31 pm: Your 22 year old WOMAN if your step father don't like who your with he needs to tell you his concerns not stop you from seeing him. Your a woman who can do what she pleases. Your not a child and you have to stand up for what you believe in. Your bf has a right to get upset if you love him you will be honest with your step dad and yourself. Your scared to speak your mind because you dont want to be rude and have conflict but your a woman who needs to tell her step father the truth and be proud of it now or your going to get older and keep lieing because your scared. Do it now before you age more and it gets worse. If you love your man tell your step dad and talk to him bout it. Do a dinner at your house so he can get to know the boyfriend. Try this out and see how it goes. With LOVE you have to take risks and chances :) [ AngelsColumn's advice column | Ask AngelsColumn A Question ]

You're a 22-year-old woman, not a 15-year-old girl that needs to hide her relationships from her parents because she's not old enough to date. [ Matt's advice column | Ask Matt A Question ]
